Holly & Ellie 01

Recently, the Haddenham Girls U16 tennis team played two matches in one weekend and managed a win (4-2) against Beaconsfield which is a big club and a 6-0 win against Wooburn Park.

Playing Beaconsfield at home was a great confidence boost for the Girls U16 after losing to strong and experienced players from Gerrards Cross in their very first match.

Against Beaconsfield, Ellie Gorringe played really well in a very long and closely fought singles rubber to win in a final set tie-break with Holly Carter just missing out in her singles. At the end of a long evening, the girls triumphed in the doubles against two players who were stronger on paper to give them a 4-2 win in the match. Their practice with both the adult and junior boys teams has really helped them and they are working well together.

On the following day, the girls traveled to Wooburn Park and this time it was Holly's turn for the close singles after Ellie had recorded a second singles win for the weekend. Holly recovered from 5-2 down to win the first set on a tie-break and after dropping the second set, went on to win the final set tie-breaker. The girls should have been very tired but won the doubles comfortably to record a 6-0 overall points win to finish off a very enjoyable weekend.

The girls seem so happy to be playing competitive tennis whenever they come off court (although it may of course be the tea laid out for them!) and the only question ever asked is 'When's the next match?'.

The GU16 won their match against Aylesbury on 4th June. Match report to follow.
